Ellis Patents Basket Tray Clip

Ellis Patents, the leading manufacturer of cable cleats and clamps, have launched a cable basket tray clip that provides a strong and reliable means of securing low and high voltage cables with high fault levels to the increasingly popular cable management solution when used in conjunction with its heavy duty trefoil cable cleats – manufactured in Type 316L Stainless Steel for excellent corrosion resistance in industrial and hazardous area installations including medium/high voltage substations.

The Ellis Patents cleat clip means cable basket tray can now compete with traditionally stronger cable management solutions such as cable ladder and cable tray on this kind of cable installation.

Richard Shaw, managing director of Ellis Patents said: “the idea for the Ellis Patents clip came about while we were carrying out testing with Cablofil to look at the performance of its basket tray in short-circuit scenarios.

“At the time there was no proven means of safely securing heavy duty cleats to basket so that they would be guaranteed to stay in place in the event of a short-circuit. And with demand for basket tray growing significantly we decided to look at a way of delivering a fixing accessory that would do exactly this.”

The resulting product, the basket tray clip is manufactured in 316L stainless steel and has been tested for use with Ellis Patents Vulcan, Emperor and Alpha trefoil cable cleats.

The cable cleat clip simply snaps in to position on the basket wires and the cable cleats are then secured to it using a standard set screw and flange nut.
